Dr. Manfred Rabl - My Services

As orthopedic and trauma surgeon, I offer a wide spectrum of medical services, but specialize in joint surgery.
You need more information? Get in touch!

Main emphasis:

After a thorough examination and review of your medical history, I will give you detailed information about your condition and will discuss your treatment options with you

  • I treat musculoskeletal disorders and traumatic injuries of the musculoskeletal system
  • I do offer my services at several locations, where you may be treated on in- or out-patient basis, depending on your condition and personal preference
The shoulder joint is critical. Sound function of the shoulder is indispensable to use mankind's most important tool, the hand. Various disorders and injuries of the shoulder can have detrimental consequences regarding the function of arm and hand and may also be the reason for severe pain. Over the last 30 years, scientific knowledge and treatment options escalated and we now have surgical options for many disorders. It is the surgeons responsibility to deliberately and only after careful consideration use surgical treatment in order to benefit the patients well being. This requires profound knowledge as well as years of experience.
Alike artifical hips and knees, artificial shoulder joints today are sophisticated and long-lasting. When dealing with degenerative diseases of the joint itself, while the tendons are still healthy (arthrosis), partial and total shoulder replacement while preserving anatomical structures is an option. When a traumatic or degenerative tear of the rotator cuff is the reason for joint degeneration, a reversed total shoulder replacement will be necessary to help you be pain free and stay active.
If you deal with allergies or are hypersensitive towards metal, different materials that are proven to be non allergenic can be used.
Arthroscopic surgery, being minimal invasive, only needs small incisions to place a camera and surgical instruments within the joint. Using a camera the size of a pen, connected to a high definition screen, the joint can be visualized in great detail. Especially in shoulder surgery, the use of arthroscopic techniques was key to understand various disorders of the shoulder and develop appropriate treatment modalities. Today we can use arthroscopy to suture ruptured tendons and ligaments, stabilize the shoulder joint to prevent dislocation and even correct bony deformities or assist fracture treatment.
